Truncating status labels in custom script field



I have a custom groovy scripted field that I'm calculating a status value based on linked issues. What I'm trying to do it to reuse the JIRA status labels so that it looks nice and familiar to the user.

What I'm returning from the script for the custom field is this:


"<span id=\"status-val\" class=\"value\"><span class=\" jira-issue-status-lozenge aui-lozenge jira-issue-status-lozenge-blue-gray jira-issue-status-lozenge-new jira-issue-status-lozenge-max-width-long \" data-tooltip=\"<span class=&quot;jira-issue-status-tooltip-title&quot;>To Do</span><span class=&quot;jira-issue-status-tooltip-desc&quot;>The issue has been completely defined and estimated. Ready to be worked on.</span>\" title=\"\" " +
"original-title=\"\">To Do</span></span>"


Now this works perfectly exept that it truncates the label name. So it only displays T...

Please see picture.

Does anybody know how to get it to stop truncating the name?

I changed the class to this:



then it doesn't truncate the label.

I don't think you can, without using another aui class.

Strange that I cannot set the width of the label. That would solve it.

There has to be a way to dispaly status labels in a custom field. Might be that the approach I have tried is the wrong approach and that there is a better one?
